(END SOT) The unidentified tuberculosis patient


who is under federal quarantine

has been moved to a Denver hospital for
further treatment. Officials at

National Jewish Hospital say he�ll
likely remain in insolation for

several weeks.




sot: William Allstetter/National Jewish

"we will try to kill the bug."



The patient knew he had a form of the
disease before he left on his

European wedding and honeymoon a few
weeks ago, but later found out he

had a dangerous and deadly strain that
is resistant to drugs. By

then, he had already flown on several
commercial flights. He was

advised not to travel anymore, but he
ignored that advice and returned

to the U-S via Canada.



Sot:Dr. Henry Blumberg/Atlanta's Grady
Memorial Hospital

"I think this case highlights that TB
is still a problem, it's still a

problem in the United States and more
so it's a problem throughout the

world."



Jennifer Miller bridge/Denver

The hospital in Denver specializes in
respiratory disorders�and it is

hoped doctors here will be able to save
the life of the 31 year old man.






Sot: William Allstetter/National Jewish
Hospital

"we�vve been treating tb for over a
hundred years."



In the meantime, health officials are
in a desperate search to find

other people he may have come in
contact with especially on planes.

so far there are no plans to file any
charges against the man.
